The Communion Prayer

In the name of Providence, which implants in the seed the future of the tree and in the hearts of men [and women] the longing for people living in [human] love; in the name of the highest. in whom we move and who makes the mother [and father]*, the brother and sister* what they are; in the name of sages and great religious leaders, who sacrificed their lives to hasten the coming of [peace and justice]—let us renew our resolution—sincerely to be real brothers and sisters* regardless of any kind of bar which estranges [one from another]. In this holy resolution may we be strengthened, knowing that we are God's family, that one spirit, the spirit of love, unites us, and [may we] endeavor for a more perfect and more joyful life. Amen.
